'Bake Off' Fans In Uproar Over Noel Fielding's Suggestive Jokes Before Watershed

'Bake Off' Fans In Uproar Over Noel Fielding's Suggestive Jokes Before Watershed

Bake Off fans reportedly have complained to Ofcom about Noel Fielding's suggestive jokes before watershed.

The regulatory authority is said to have received 37 complaints after Noel quipped that a wooden spoon (christened 'Mr Spoon') wanted to see contestant Peter Sawkins "naked".

The Mighty Booth star also joked with co-host Matt Lucas about making a "nude" jelly sculpture of judge Paul Hollywood with "lime" flavoured nipples.

Noel's comments aired during Bake Off's quarter final, which aired 10th November 2020. A source told The Sun: "The [watchdog] complaints were about sexual references made by Noel Fielding."

During the episode, co-host Noel was seen holding up a wooden spoon, which he explained to Matt was called 'Mr Spoon'.

Later on, he asked 20-year-old contestant Peter: "Do you like Mr Spoon?"

Rushing around to finish his mini cheesecake challenge, Peter responded: "I love him."

To which Noel answered: "You do? He wants to kiss you. Mr Spoon says he wants to see Peter naked."

'Bake Off' Fans Shocked By Paul Hollywood's Filthy 'Horn' Innuendo

Another asked: "If he said he wanted to see Prue naked would it still be funny? No, it comes across creepy."

"This might just be me, but I think Noel saying that Mr Spoon wanted to see Peter naked was crossing a line of good taste and appropriateness. Would he say that about a female contestant? #GBBO #TheGreatBritishBakingShow," commented a third.

While a fourth chimed in: "'Mr. Spoon says he wants to see Peter naked' - how much more do we actually have to take until we can get rid of the most awkward and inappropriate Noel Fielding on."

The Mighty Boosh comedian is known for his quirky style of presenting and this isn't the first time his comments have raised an eyebrow or two. He previously quipped that he'd dreamt about Paul "wearing an apron" saying that it was "pretty powerful".

GBBO is famed for its innuendos. Earlier this week, Paul Hollywood made headlines by asking Prue if she would "like to try some of his horn" - referring to his take on the Scandi dessert Horn of Plenty, naturally.

The Great British Bake Off continues on Tuesdays at 8pm on Channel 4.
